CHEESY SMOKED SAUSAGE PASTA SKILLET

Smoked Sausage Pasta Skillet - The Southern Lady Cooks

Smoked Sausage Pasta Skillet is great comfort food and a quick, easy meal. Just add some cornbread muffins and a salad.  We love easy skillet meals during the week that you can just throw together with very little time in the kitchen.  This meal is good in summer and winter.  I like using fresh garden tomatoes and peppers in this recipe in summer.

Smoked Sausage Pasta Skillet Ingredients Needed:

Smoked sausage

Butter

Onion

Green pepper

Minced garlic

Salt

Black pepper

Hot sauce, Optional

Chicken broth

Diced tomatoes

Green chilis

Rotini pasta (could use shells, macaroni, penne)

Shredded cheese of your choice (could use more cheese. I used Mozzarella cheese)

This recipe is very versatile and easy to throw together on a busy night. If you don’t like an ingredient such as green peppers, simply leave it out or add something you do enjoy. You could also make this without the pasta and serve over rice for another easy and different dish. If you do decide to use rice, you could always use cauliflower rice as well.


“The hubby had seconds so it must have been pretty good. I did not add the hot sauce and I used a can of rotel tomatoes and homemade chicken broth. It was delicious.” – Kendra

“This is delicious!! I made it for dinner last night and we loved it!! I left out the hot sauce and used shredded cheddar cheese sooooo yummy!!!” – Nicole

“Made this tonight for dinner i loved it, so easy to make added a touch of thyme and rosemary.” – Patricia
